Women Shoes

Salam and hi all... !

For today's second entry, I would like to talk about shoes... yes.. most women love shoes right? hehe..
So, let's educate ourselves with different types of shoes out there in the market..

p/s: Guys... please pay attention to our shoes ok... a little compliment wouldn't hurt... :)

Pump Shoes
and here is another pump shoes... but this one, it's called..

peep toe pump shoes


A boot with a stiletto heel

A stiletto heel (AmE: spike heel) is a long, thin heel found on some boots and shoes, usually for women. It is named after the stiletto dagger, the phrase being first recorded in the early 1930s.[1] Stiletto heels may vary in length from 2.5 centimetres (1 inch) to 20 cm (8 inches)or more if a platform sole is used, and are sometimes defined as having a diameter at the ground of less than 1 cm (slightly less than half an inch). Stiletto-style heels shorter than 5 cm are called kitten heels. Not all high slim heels merit the description stiletto.

Wedges ..
What Exactly is a Wedge Heel?On most shoes, the "heel" sits under only the heel of the foot, but a wedge heel runs under the foot, from the back of the shoe to the middle or front.

As you've probably guessed, it has a wedge shape, but not all wedges are high heels. In fact, wedge heels range from low to high, it's the shape and the length of the heel that classify it as a wedge.

Advantages of Wedge Heels:

These shoes add height, but are easier to walk in than stilettos.
Wedges have a very cosmopolitan look to them - they're worldly and sophisticated.
A wedge heel looks great with nearly any length skirt or dress.
Wedge heels, by nature, are a fashionable choice - by just choosing to wear them, you up your fashion quotient.

Wedges will add definition and shape to heavy ankles, making them appear thinner.

Cons of Wedges:
Wedge heels are still heels, with all their pitfalls. Don't be fooled into thinking you can run a marathon in them.

Wedges can look a little clunky, especially when paired with very tight-fitting clothing.
This style tends to seem a bit on the casual side. While there are dressier styles of wedges, finding a truly elegant one can be a bit difficult.
A thick wedge heel will make really skinny ankles appear even thinner.

Mary Jane is an American term (formerly trademarked) for a kind of strap shoe or sandal that typically has low heels, broad and rounded closed toes, and a single-buckle strap across the instep and/or around the ankle. They are traditionally made of black patent leather, although some current incarnations can be in a wide array of colors and leathers.

Traditionally Mary Janes are a variety of shoe worn mainly by young girls. In modern times they are worn by women of all ages. Mary Janes are typically considered formal for girls and informal when worn by women.


loafers too..
Loafers have an inherently "preppy" feel to them, making them a great choice for adding a sporty touch to casual attire. They're perfect with jeans or casual pants, but to keep them from being boring, look for a unique color, finish, texture, or detailing. The patent uppers and chic hardware set these casual loafers apart from the crowd

This type of shoes is called MULES

A Mule (French word) is a type of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. They can be any heel height from flat to high. This style of shoe is predominantly worn by women but some styles for men are also available.

The term is generally believed to have been derived from the ancient Roman calceus mulleus, a red shoe worn by senators and other high officials, although there is little indication of any structural resemblance.
